Let me share with you some recent examples of Facebook and Twitter and YouTube coming against conservative speech. You can draw your own conclusions.

3 Reasons Why So Many Millennials Love Socialism

It's true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it's true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there's no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why?

Israel's Looming Civil War

There is a civil war looming in Israel, but very few are talking about it. I'm not referring to the potential of a civil war between Israelis and Palestinians.

To My Fellow-Christian Conservatives: This Is No Time for a Pity Party

It is true that an ugly anti-Bible tide is rising in America. It is true that many conservative believers – in particular Christian – have been discriminated against, be it by the IRS or by the social media giants.

Evangelicals can no longer be taken seriously because they're in bed with Trump. And on and on it goes. This has almost become the new orthodoxy: Prove your allegiance to Jesus by denouncing Trump.

President Buhari, Please Stop the Muslim Slaughter of Nigerian Christians

Babies are being hacked to death. Children kidnapped. Women raped and savaged. Young and old burned alive. Houses destroyed, livestock plundered.

Thoughts on Crying Babies, Dying Babies and Media Deception

The technique is proven and effective. Put a moving, highly effective, propagandistic photo on the front page (or cover) of your story. Cause a moral outrage in the public. Then, several days (or even weeks) later, print a retraction somewhere in the middle of your publication where few will find it: "We regret publishing a picture with a misleading caption." It works like a charm!

Do Moral Values Change With the Times?

One of the most common objections I hear to biblical morality is short, succinct, and to the point: "It's 2018!" In other words, "How can you believe in such outdated values in this day and age?" But do morals change the way technology changes?
